ESPN Will Extend Classic Monday Night Football Games Schedule Until June 1






ESPN-logoESPN and the NFL have extended their weekly re-airing of classic games on Monday Nights through June 1, 2020. The network has been re-airing iconic games from the last 15 years to fill the voids on Monday nights at 8 PM ET ever since live sporting events have been canceled.

This Monday, tune in to watch the infamous “Fail Mary” game between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers when the Seahawks pulled off a last minute controversial win with a 24-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the game.

Hey Rookie: Welcome to the NFL will debut Monday, May 4, at 7 p.m. before the Packers-Seahawks MNF Classic. The one-hour special produced by NFL Films documents the 2020 NFL Draft process for four of this year’s top prospects – Jerry Jeudy (Alabama WR/No. 15 pick by Denver), Derrick Brown (Auburn DT/No. 7 pick, Carolina), Andrew Thomas (Georgia OT/No. 4, N.Y. Giants) and KJ Hamler (Penn State WR/No. 46, Denver). Hey Rookie documentation started in January and continued through personal training, NFL Combine, the start of pro days and last weekend’s NFL Draft when the players documented their experiences.
